With the Christchurch Rebuild ramping up, there are heaps of companies trying to get in on the action.
What separates the honest tradies from the cowboys?
Should you always go for the best price?
How can you know who to trust?
Heat Pumps NOW has a few tips to steer you in the right direction if you're looking for a good tradesperson or heat pump installer.
What Are Other People Saying?
Another option is to check feedback placed on sites like Facebook, Google+ or BuildersCrack. If a Christchurch tradesperson or heat pump installer has to feedback or too much negative feedback, that could also be a good indicator of what to expect.
It's easy to dismiss one or two bad reviews, you can't please everyone after all. But if you can see a negative pattern, it's probably best you steer clear.
Are They Endorsed Or Accredited?
If you're not sure whether your Christchurch tradie or heat pump installer is accredited or not, just ask. Most organisations provide ID cards for this very reason.
Check if your mechanic is MTA assured, if your builder is a Registered Master Builder, or the guy installing your heat pump is accredited with the major brands, like Mitsubishi Electric or Fujitsu. Heat Pumps NOW is proudly Mitsubishi and Fujitsu accredited.
Use Established Christchurch Firms
Websites, social media accounts, business cards, monogrammed uniforms and signwritten vehicles are all measures of credibility. They let you know the tradesperson or heat pump installer you are hiring cares about their business and the quality of their work.
Have A Chat & Shop Around
An onsite inspection should also allow the tradie to give you a detailed quote of what the job should cost and why, so you can make a better comparison between companies.
It's really hard to give a quote for a heat pump install without having a look at the property, because there are a number of factors to take into account. Is it a back-to-back install? How far is the heat pump from the power main? What kind of setting is the outdoor unit in? How big is the room you want to heat? Without taking all of these, and a few more factors besides into account, we can't give you an accurate quote on your heat pump installation.
